Until October 31, 2023, Maundu served as a Partner at Bowmans - Stamford Corporate Services LLP, overseeing the discharge of statutory and corporate governance mandates for entities across diverse sectors.
Her earlier role at Deloitte in East African countries further solidified her understanding of corporate laws and statutory regulations in the region.
Her expertise spans various areas, including Governance, Legal and Company Secretarial services, Bond/Note and Security Trustee services, Escrow Agent services, and Shares and Bond Registration Services.
